    ASUS, a pioneer in the adoption of cutting-edge notebook graphics, announced today the ASUS N81Vg, the world’s first notebook to feature the new NVIDIA GeForce GT 120M graphics processing unit (GPU). The NVIDIA GeForce GT 120M GPU features NVIDIA CUDA technology with 32 processor cores, DirectX 10 support, and 1080p High Definition video playback through NVIDIA PureVideo HD technology. Coupled with the ASUS N81Vg’s 14-inch LED backlit display, the NVIDIA GeForce GT 120M delivers unrivaled visual clarity and vibrancy.


    Combining Effortless Mobility with Stunning Graphics Performance
    The pairing of the ASUS N81Vg and the NVIDIA GeForce GT 120M provides users with numerous multimedia options in a small, highly portable notebook designed to take entertainment to the streets.

    "The ASUS N81Vg uses the GeForce GT 120M GPU to deliver a visual computing experience far superior to other notebooks in its category today," said Rene Haas, General Manager, Notebook Products, NVIDIA. "With 32 powerful processing cores, the GeForce 120M GPU makes photo editing, video editing, movie ripping, high-definition Blu-ray playback and gaming a reality on 14-inch notebooks."

    "We are proud to offer consumers a notebook that is capable of providing spectacular graphics and stunning clarity while maintaining effortless mobility," said Alvin Chou, Senior Product Manager of ASUS’ Notebook Business Unit. "By combining sublime graphics performance, smart technologies and supreme ease of use, the N81Vg is the ideal notebook for those who would like to enjoy multimedia to the fullest."

    NVIDIA GeForce GT 120M – Fast Forward Visual Experience for All
    The NVIDIA GeForce GT 120M features the latest NVIDIA CUDA technology, which harnesses a massive 110 gigaflops of computing power for a myriad of applications such as video conversion and High Definition enhanced DVD playback with up to 15 times higher frame rate. Users can enjoy greater productivity with CUDA-enhanced photo and video editing applications such as CyberLink PowerDirector and motionDSP vReveal. With DirectX 10 support, users can experience realistic in-game texture details, high dynamic range lighting and special visual effects. NVIDIA PureVideo HD handles 100% of the video decoding process, producing 1080p High Definition visuals with sharper images, smoother transitions and more vibrant colors.

    With a 3DMark 2006 score of 5,431, the ASUS N81Vg delivers up to 15 times better performance than most other 14-inch notebooks, thus satisfying discerning users with a penchant for High Definition audio and visual enjoyment while on the go.

    Reliable Computing and Entertainment with Variable Power Modes
    The ASUS N81Vg lasts 3 hours in Performance mode and 4 hours in Battery Conservation mode—in both cases an hour more than similarly-specified notebooks.

    Wake up DAAMIT!

    I know this move is, again, stupid. But you have to admit that it effectively increase their margin. DAAMIT should have learned this lesson from nVidia a long time ago. nVidia don't even have a new product but they do have a "new name" for their old product and to some end users. It doesn't really matter where this GT120M came from. PC manufacturers always be able to sell these babies as the "newest mobile GPU up to date". And what do we got from DAAMIT's side? mobility Radeon HD34xx, 36xx, 38xx and that's all. They should focus more on mobile market than ever now if they don't want to be left in the dark with their paper-launched M9x GPUs.
